FlaxenSilk{l} is a lace weight yarn of 65% mulberry (bombyx mori) silk and 35% linen spun in the mountains of Switzerland by Camenzind, who has been spinning silk since the mid 1800s. Each 100 gm skein is 800 meters (approximately 875 yards) of gloriously crisp, shiny, and lightweight yarn, perfect for summer or warm weather projects.

This is an elegant yarn with a personality - it’s a little quirky with a bit of a crunch, but without the roughness sometimes associated with linen. It is not fuzzy or stretchy. It blocks beautifully, with crisp definition and a glowing shine.

Hand washing is recommended. The dyes I use are low-impact Procion MX fiber reactive dyes, the same that I use for all dyedianadye garments and accessories. I use a cold water process, randomly distributing color, often in multiple baths to produce a glazed and layered effect. The result is no regular striping or predictable pooling. In addition, both the silk and linen fibers take up the dye. You will not have white linen strings or haze in this yarn.

All skeins within a lot or between lots will vary from one other. If your garment requires more than a single skein, consider alternating between skeins.

Base yarn spun in Switzerland and dyed by me in my Atlanta studio.

Caking and gift bagging your skein is an add-on option.
